A Paralegal’s Guide To Working With A Legal Process Server

Although the server's work may be less detailed or expensive than that of the investigator, it's often just as critical to the success of the case. Unserved or wrongly served defendants can cause huge scheduling delays and damage an otherwise well-planned case.

As with investigators, use word-of-mouth referrals and recommendations from other attorneys and paralegals to choose an effective server. Some attorney service firms do a high-volume business, serving and filing several hundred papers per day. While these cost-effective firms may be useful for "ordinary" services, they may not handle harder jobs. Other firms may specialize in difficult services and locates, and the price of their work is reflected in the degree of difficulty.
